I completed my first Half Marathon! I had the privilege to be joined by my brother and sister to share in this experience This is my brother Evan's first half marathon and my sister Erin's second this year! We all crossed the finish line with a warm congratulations from our parents.
I am proud of my siblings as well as myself. If you were to have asked us all last year if we thought we were going to be running a half marathon this year we would all probably respond "Are you kidding?".
Today we are all trying to find new levels in our fitness goals. Evan is even contemplating riding a bike across America!
The race went well, I finished 2207 out of 7005 with a race time of 02:01:23 with an average pace of 9:16. Although I would have enjoyed getting a time under 2 hours, I like the fact that I have more to work towards for future runs. My goal was to receive a time under 2:10:00 so I am ecstatic to have achieved my goal with over 8:30 to spare!
In the future I will be definitely be thinking about the potability of completing a full marathon. Howrever, it's probably going to have to take a rain check. After all, this coming year I will be walking 20+ miles everyday.
